OAK BROOK, Ill. — Do you ever dream of a more effective, delicious way to eat the toppings and sauce that fall from a juicy burger?

If so, you’re in luck. McDonald’s revealed the “Frork” on Monday, calling it a “uselessly useful” utensil in a parody video posted to YouTube.

It’s essentially a fork with fries for prongs — which are meant to pick up any sandwich toppings that fall out while eating.

The mock infomercial was created to highlight McDonald’s new Signature Crafted Recipes, which include flavors such as Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon and Maple Bacon Dijon.

“Will the Frork change your life? Probably not.” infomercial pitchman Anthony Sullivan said in the video. “Will the Frork improve your Signature Crafted Recipes eating experience? I mean, sure … maybe.”

There’s also a cellphone number in the video, 844-McD-Frork, where customers can score freebies — including Frorks — while supplies last.

Frorks will be available on Friday at participating restaurants while supplies last.

In Denver, they be found at the following locations:

  • 200 16th St.
  • 3350 Colorado Blvd.
  • 1905 S. Federal Blvd.
  • 6355 E. Evans Ave.
  • 5550 W. Dartmouth Ave.
  • 4475 Peoria St.
